Catherine’s multidisciplinary practice addresses communication through voice and language and the interplay between hearing/listening and seeing/reading. Using field recording, digital imaging and the spoken/written word she is exploring an expanded approach to language within species and across species through a framework of everyday experience. With listening as a key focus and the complexity of the urban as a shared sonic space, the artworks prompt transmission and reception through the fluidity, instability and mobility of voicing and languaging. The artworks are frequently collaborative and take several forms including soundworks, installations, external public artworks, performances and artist books. Brought up in London she moved to Melbourne through a residency with Gertrude Contemporary in the 1990s. Exhibiting and performing regularly both within Australia and internationally, she teaches at Swinburne University of Technology and RMIT.
Currently based: Melbourne
